you how to play this. so call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. you heard the chatter, so have i. what's that charter? that we're putting in a top right here, right now. because given the weak employment number, the slowly growing economy, and the lack of any positive growth turn in europe or china, we can't possibly improve on the earnings we already have. to me, it's the reason why even as we bumped up against the earlier highs again, we can't seem to take them out. we can't seem to leave them convincingly in the rear-view mirror. the dow up one point. look, i get this. i get the arguments, you know, what's known as top-down analysis at work. that top-down analysis, it's suspect. it has to do with the relation between the economy and the stock. with the assumption what really matters to the stock is whether the economies in the world accelerate or decelerate. that kind of thesis, it can make some sense. it's not fachous. if economies around the globe are slowing down, as is the case in europe or china, or showing little growth in jobs or goods or services sold, it does stand to reaso
associates tells cnbc, "i think gold should be a portion of everyone's portfolio to some degree because it diversifies the portfolio. it is the alternative money. we have a situation now, he continues, where we have too much debt and too much debt leads to printing money. gold's clearly moving on those comments. sharon epperson has the very latest trade heading into the weekend. >> the momentum and the trading action here on the commodities floor definitely here in the gold pits today. we did see gold prices hit $1,790 an ounce, the highest price since february. we have pulled back a bit and some other commodities as well but we are looking at near highs of the year. this run that we've seen in gold is mirrored by what we saw in silver. silver though actually pulling back first and some traders say some of the rebalancing that may be going on in the s&p may have impacted other asset classes. still, big profits in these metals over the course of the week. we'll have more on the metal's close at 4:30. >>> jeff kilburg has been here all week. first, do you agree with mr. dalio? >> absolute
in other data. in an exclusive interview with cnbc, mario monti says he will not access the bond buying program anytime soon. >> i believe that what italy is doing in terms of domestic policies both budgetary and fiscal discipline and structure reforms should be enough to reassure the markets. >> you can catch made he rea's full interview on u.s. closing bell at about 21:00 central european time. steven, welcome. >> my pleasure. >> your initial thoughts on this italian gdp data and mario monti saying the country won't apply the bailout. >> g did dpvised town. it's too early for any of the policy shiftses to have had an impact. i think with respect to both italy and spain, there's he a tremendous reluctance to accept the potential constraints that would come with taking a program, not so much now because the ecb -- everyone seems to be res assuring them that they feel that they're in compliance. the question is what happens in six months, what happens in a year if there's a slowdown and all of a sudden they find the troica knocking on the door and talking about fiscal issues. what they h
to president obama's speech from former hewlett-packard ceo and cnbc contributor carly fiorina. we're also rejoined by greg valiare. carly, thank you very much for joining us. you've had a hectic day already. your thoughts on the president's speech. >> well, i think we knew before he started speaking that he is a good and sincere man. i think we knew that he is an eloquent and passionate speaker. i appreciate, as i always do when he speaks, the way he talks about our troops, the way he highlights individual americans and everything they've done. but honestly, i have to say, where was the beef in this speech? it was, from my point of view, a purely emotional appeal. it was empty calories. there was no nutritional value, i think. there were no specifics. he presented a set of false choices to voters based on caricaturing his opposition. or demonizing or demagoguing his opposition. honestly, i really was quite surprised by the lack of specificity and the lack of beef in this speech. >> all right, greg, the lack of beef in this speech. what's your take, buddy? >> i don't think that was the int
and teach you, so call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. so this morning, okay, this guy stops me in front of the coffee stand downtown, the one where i get my burning hot high octane cup of joe every day, as i have for years and years, sticks his hand out, tells me he loves the show. and then he tells me he wants to know when the day of reckoning is coming. now we know it wasn't today because the averages rallied, dow gaining 13 points, the s&p increasing 1.73% and the nasdaq up 4.82. that's because people not only don't believe this rally, they think it's on its last legs, at all times. and that when it ends, it will peel not 4 or 5%, but it's going to give up the whole shebang. first let me tell you what i told my newfound friend after i gave max the 2 bucks for the extra large java with just a little bit of milk. i answered oh, yeah? the day of reckoning? guess what, pal, because i always pal people if i'm not buddying them or chiefing them, guess what, pal, we already had it. you might have missed it if you blingd. it was the hideous move from the dow down about four years ago. now that was one ser
the cnbc that the number is most likely over 8 billion. jay kornegay who runs the sports book at the las vegas hotel and casino says 12 to 15 million was bet on the game in vegas, usually is 1 to 2% of the global take. you include internet exoverseas, et cetera. that's talking about 750 million. now, consider that there's a loser for every winner and we are talking about, sue, 1.5, folksily, billion dollar swing when it comes to gambling. it is big numbers. >> huge. full disclosure, as i said, i'm green bay packers fan so this is not going over well me. but despite that, we are going to talk more about this with brian and bring in jack brewer. he played for five years in the nfl, including three years as a team captain, postnfl career clufded stops at harvard business school, want, merrill lynch, private bank. now the ceo of the brewer group, an investment global advisory fish. jack, good to see you again. good to see you at cnbc. >> great to sigh. >> people are talking about this is the tipping point that the nfl now has to do something to get the regular refs back in. can they withstan
of the convention. john and i will be part of tonight's cnbc especially coverage immediately following the broadcast. turning to our big story tonight, strong market rally on wall street. here is what you need to know. brian shactman has the run-down. good evening. >> thank you very much. 2% across the board for the strongest rally since late june. since we talk about politics the market's at the highest levels of the obama presidency. talk about timing. pretty good on a day like today. we want to put the rally in more calendar context the t. for the s&p we are looking at levels not seen in more than four and a half years. the dow the last month of 2007 and the nasdaq gets the prize, touching nearly 12-year high. in terms of sector, six of the ten up more than 2% paced by materials and financials. some big names outperformed in the marketplace today. let's take a look at those. we have bank of america up 5%. again you have goldman sachs, three and a quarter. citigroup four and a half. jpmorgan four and a quarter. morgan stanley 3.5 to the upside. amazon, high of 252 pulling back slightly. they intro
is not just to entertain you but to educate you. call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. is it so bad that it's good? or is it just plain bad? that's the request ethis market tries to resolve each day lately. this morning it answered negatively, changing in the afternoon and then getting negative again. the dow finishing down only 55 points. s&p slipping just 0.12%. nasdaq, advanced 0.26%. what do i mean when i say things might be so bad that they're actually good? i'm talking about a theme that's so alien that most of you watching at home, as we run into a vicious gaunt let of news this week that will probably determine much of how the historically miserable month b of september pans out. let's flush things out. first, regular watchers of this show know that stocks ultimately react to the future. not the past or the current set of circumstances. the immediate reaction to down beat news may be negative, but negative news tends to spur policy actions by governments, and those actions can work to stimulate growth. provided they're aggressive and smart enough to turn economies around. let's take the th
to but to coach you how to play this. so call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. you've heard the chatter. so have i. what's that chatter? that we're putting in a top right here right now because given the weak employment numbers, the slowly growing economy and lack of any positive growth turn in europe or china. we can't possibly improve on these earnings we already have. to me, it's the reason why even as we bumped up against those old earlier highs again, we can't seem to take them out. can't seem to lead them convincingly in the rearview mirror. dow gaining ten points. nasdaq is inching .32%. i get this, i get the arguments, talked about it this morning "squawk on the street," heard it all day. you know what's known as top down analysis at work and i've got to tell you something, that top down analysis it's suspect. it has to do with the relation between the economy and the stock market. with the assumption, b, that what really matters to your stocks is whether the economies of the world accelerate or decelerate. that kind of thesis, it can make some sense, it's not fact. we're showing little growth i
at 1-800-743-cnbc. here is the thing. you have to understand on another day where the average is slowly ground to a mixed close, dow losing 17 points. awe, there goes that streak! s&p ending slightly low, down 0.01%. nasdaq advancing 0.13%. not bad. what it says is we're in a good market. the fed is throwing gasoline on the fire. europe is getting its act together slowly but surely, i think. and as long as you don't fall into the trap of buying companies that are what we call long-term secular decline, meaning if the economy gets better, they won't do well, i think you'll do just fine. i think we're done with the days when the averages get hammered. and then stay hammered. i think we're now in a world where they can't rebound fast enough on some days. that's the new environment. at least until the end of the year. as hedge fund managers desperately try to catch up to the averages by picking up stocks aggressively on pretty much every dip, that's been this pattern. so with that in mind, what is the game plan for next week? what what do you do for an encore if your stock is already up 86%
at cnbc world headquarters. a late day slide on wall street with the s&p 500 breaking below the key technical level of 1450. the s&p and nasdaq having their worst days in months. protests in spain today demanding parliament be dissolved and elections be held. we'll bring you the details on the ground in madrid coming up. meanwhile, the market closing at the lows of the day. things intensifying at the end of the day amidst what's happening in spain as well as the week that we are ending, the third quarter. expectations that earnings are coming in after caterpillar warns and fedex a couple weeks ago. liz saunders says she's beginning to see things in this market that can be a good thing. she joins us now along with janua own rick santelli. what would you attribute this end of day selling to today? >> i think on some technical measures, the market certainly is a bit overbought. we've been saying we wouldn't be surprised to sew ed td to see al back. i think it shows maybe there were itchy traders looking to take some profits. clearly what's going on in spain brings the problems there ba

on this topic. and greg cox has been doing terrific reporting on this on cnbc.com. you must a must-read article on high-frequency trading say it is worse than you thought. some firms themselves are extremely concerned. >> this report came from the chicago fed. they surveyed 30 industries, people connected to the hft business in one way or another. they found an industry where speed is everything, even beyond eclipsing any kind of controls where computer algorithms running wild. they're using patches to fix the run-away algos that are making the problems even worse. an industry where even the participants understand that we need regulation, we need to slow things down a little bit. >> jeff, you know that a lot of times they'll put in a fix and the market finds a way around it or market participants find a way around it. right? >> absolutely, sue. i've personally been a hood ornament on many hfc situations. it is very frustrating from traders because at the end of the day we feel like it is's not a level playing field. we're at a gun fight with a knife. we need a restrictor plate on these high-fr

-sized deal. jackie deangelis has more on that and the latest headlines coming into the cnbc newsroom. good evening. >> good evening to you. texans who live in the austin area will be able to pay to drive 85 miles an hour on a 41-mile stretch of road beginning in november. texas has a contract with a spanish toll road operating company that called for paying more for higher speeds. so the state gets an extra hundred million because out set the limit at 85. just to make that stretch more attractive to drivers the state lowered the speed limit on a parallel stretch of highway from 65 to 55. some peel familiar with texas driving practices may argue a lot of texans drive 85 normally. it's a big state. so will they pay for what many do anyway? we'll see. two weeks after lance armstrong gave up his right to fight doping charges the head of the world cycling federation told the ap he's considering an amnesty program for cyclists in a move to clean up cycling. the question is if cyclists would fess up. finally tonight a scary version of oreos for halloween. candy corn oreo. most of the moorm is try

[ sell, sell, sell ] [ house of pain ] yet what did we get? the dow rallied 12 points. the s&p losing just .11%. minuscule. i have been schooled. i know you don't want to hear about how confused i am, how mystified. you want me to explain what happened in a way that makes it clear and rational. if you read my midnight tweets @jimcramer about how fedex's blown quarter was like a running back with a blown knee going into the big fantasy game or the big game between the cowboys and giants meaning a tough session ahead of us then you know i got the market wrong. hey, i don't like being wrong. i don't like thinking federal express can preannounce negative earnings and out barely affects the averages. the dow didn't go down. uh-uh prefer markets that are predicta

-800-743-cnbc. this business of stocks isn't politics. it's not like a presidential campaign where each candidate tries to explain why you might be better or worse off than you were four years ago. no. today's rally where the dow rocketed 245 points, the s&p rose 2.04%, and the nasdaq vaulted 2.17% is about something different. it's about asking whether companies are better off than they were four years ago, not you. because those are the old stock prices we are now challenging with this amazing run. the stock prices of companies now versus then. are they better off? the difference between policy and profits confuses more of you than just about anything else i know. we all know people who are hurting. there is not a lot of hiring going on. five years ago we had 5% unemployment. now it's 8%. that's an election issue. i'm sure a lot of people aren't better off because of the tough job market. that's not what's at stake when it comes to our stocks. we are not investing in whether you find it easy or hard to get a job. we are not investing in your ability or inability to get along. we are n
money. my job isn't just to entertain but i'm trying to teach you out here. call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. has the market lost its mind? we have so much bad news today they should have been hammered. they should have been crushed. laid to waste. but we closed the day in the black? the dow closing 15 points, s&p goinging .4, nasdaq up .02? it was unbelievable. it was unfathomable. i'm sure many of you are thinking what the heck is going on with this whacko nut job -- come on. humor me. we have the worst estimate to job creation number in ages. a number that's so disappointing. i mean, just incredible. it took your breath away. out's not a random commerce department figure. some boring purchasing manager's report. some consumer confidence number. it's a big enchilada. the nonfarm payroll report. out's got guac and picante. it's the most important number yet. the one with maximum negative um pact on the stock market when it's been a wee bit disapointing as opposed to missing by a country mile like today. you have the biggest semiconductor company on earth intel preannouncing a tremendous mis
. this morning they're up 43 cents to 92.28. i don't know if you saw the story on cnbc yesterday about how an oil trader who was drunk a couple years ago back in 2009 was the reason that prices spiked overnight. he blacked out and didn't realize he broke 7 million contracts or something overnight. kept bidding it up. but let's take a look at the ten year note. at this point ten year yielding 1.625%. dollar has been interesting this week as it's gained always bit against the euro, but today that trend has turned around. 1.294 is where the euro is trading. up against the yen, down against the swiss franc. and gold prices are up by $3.50. $1784 an ounce. >> all day we are looking ahead to the fourth quarter. we begin with michelle caruso-cabrera and what to look for in europe. >> cnbc's chief international correspondent, here's what to watch for overseas in the fourth quarter. mid october, the transition to a new government in china. only happens every ten years. it's been delayed racked with controversy and prevented leadership from focusing on the economy as much as it might have otherwise. in eur
at 1-800-743-cnbc. weren't we supposed to be finished going higher for the year? wasn't the most recent selloff with any end to the hoax? a strong fourth quarter begins monday? was today where the averages roared, dow gaining 72 points. nasdaq climbing 1.39% the real deal, and the last few days were an aberration. you know how important this question is? every money manager and his brother in this country is trying to figure out which trajectory is phony and which is real. you know how we work on "mad money," we, meaning me. we have a distinctly joanie mitchell approach to the market. we look at stocks from both sides. what i want to do is trace the view from both sides now and then reach a conclusion about the ultimate direction that awaits us. first let me give you the bear case because that is most salient right now, because until this morning, the bear case had suddenly come to fore. there was so much to be negative about. the terrible durable goods numbers, further reduction in gross domestic product. they all point to further reductions in earnings estimates. as well as what we no

you but to educate you. so call me at 1-800-743-cnbc. when does hope have to be realized? when do we have to see good news from governments around the world to really get behind stocks and do some buying? that's something i heard about a lot the other day when the market refused to tank for most of the day despite the terrible chinese data last night and finally took a turn for the worse in the later afternoon and nasdaq declining 1.03%, including a big hit in apple. even then we weren't down as much as the pessimists thought we should be and will be for that matter. we keep waiting, for example, for some sign that the chinese government recognizes the growth rate is slowing rather dramatically. we keep thinking if the europeans would not risk the unity that they've build and the german supreme court would see the common sense writing on the wall and we hope the spanish will ask for a timely bailout. we think germany will try to avoid the depression that people were talking about today. we keep waiting for an all-clear signal in our country on the election and on that dreaded fiscal
, bill clinton headlining the evening tonight in charlotte. cnbc's own john harwood previews the former president's dnc address. good evening, john. >> good evening, larry. the democratic convention is getting fired up by speakers behind me. the main event is bill clinton who will bring full circle a relationship that was strained with barack obama when barack obama and hillary clinton ran against each other four years ago. clinton is here because nobody has more credibility in politics on the economy and nobody can frame an argument better, as you see in this ad that began airing last month for president obama. >> the republican plan is to cut more taxes on upper income people and go back to deregulation. that's what got us in trouble. president obama has a plan to rebuild america from the ground up. >> larry, we have excerpts from what bill clinton will say tonight. he's going to say if you want a winner-take-all, you're on your own society vote republican. if uh you want a society of shared prosperity and we are all in this together, vote for president obama. this convention will hea
